the Grace note

For me, Grace Kelly is the most beautiful woman that ever graced the Hollywood screen. She is the epitome of sophistication, beauty, femininity, elegance, and basically every spectacular word to describe a woman.
I remember sitting in class watching Rear Window and being absolutely entranced by her presence.
I then remember the famed professor Drew Casper talking about Grace Kelly's entrance. He walked from side to side of the theater pretending to turn on lights.

However, Grace Kelly wasn't actually this amazingly pristine woman that Hitchcock imagined her to be.
Instead, she slept with most (if not all) of her male co-stars and used her femininity to attract any and all male attention. Some call her a slut, others applaud her feminist behavior, but I think she was just another heartbroken woman.

This past week/weekend, all the movie bloggers were talking about this upcoming Grace Kelly biopic and throwing out potential names. Basically, every single blonde actress' name is getting thrown out there. Carefully considering age, physicality, and actually talent my vote is for January Jones or Sienna Miller.

To be honest, I would love if they picked a complete unknown for this part. Casting any female actress with a strong star persona could damage the audience's perception of Grace Kelly the  movie. The name Grace Kelly draws in so much interest on its own that producers don't need a big star to sell the film.

I'm already excited to see the film.


  1. Words are not enough to describe the beauty of Grace Kelly! I can't wait for the movie.

  2. i heard that blake lively is also considered for this role, but I can't imagine her as Grace, it would be a terrible choice !!

  3. Grace Kelly is so beautiful, she's definitely my beauty icon. My vote would be with January Jones to play her in the film, because she's beautiful but I think she definitely has a fiesty vixen side.

    graceful and such a style icon
